Let's Cheer for Re-ment!

Let's cheer for Re-ment Girly styles! I purchased these two little outfits for my Mini
American Girls. I haven't yet tried them on my Skipper , Staci, or Chelsea dolls, to see the
size variations. I think they would probably fit Skipper and Staci better. The cheer
outfit is in two pieces, with velcro up the back. The pom poms are on a round piece of cardstock, with a small elastic ring hot glued to it that fits over the dolls hand. One of Mini Rebecca's pom poms came apart while I was putting it on her hand, a drop of glue and it will be fixed soon.
I thought I would share these little outfits with you, as I am still gathering items for my Queen's Jubilee diorama I wish to do in Barbietown...and I am attempting to build again. Pictures to come when I make some progress on that new project for the summer!

It's raining dolls!

It's raining men here at the One Sixth Scale Dollhouse! I arrived home from vacation, and found so many packages waiting me---dolls!

Prince William, er, the Duke of Cambridge incognito alert! Before I left, I won a nude Prince William
off of Ebay, he arrived before I got back. I had bid on the Princess Catherine, but lost. I am looking for a nude Princess Kate doll from this set, so if you wish to sell her with her ring and earrings on, Email me as I am still looking for another Kate doll that can be re dressed.
Speaking of the royals, the other doll I bid on who has the facial features of Queen Elizabeth also showed up as well. She was a Doll World Scarlet O'Hara. Her hair is nice, but I need short curly hair and the eyes need to be painted blue. I am still figuring out if I can reroot her hair. She was only six bucks, so I guess it is worth it to get some saran hair and find out. My reasons for collecting these dolls is for a parade or walk about scene in Barbietown when the Queen visits with her grandchildren, and she is presented with the keys to the city, and everyone is standing behind the roped areas waiting to shake hands with the Prince, Princess and the Queen and give her flowers. I do not wish to undress my Kate who is still inher wedding gown, I would like to keep that set in their bridal attire untouched. So am on the lookout for a Kate doll from the Mattel set if someone is willing to sell her nude. I would also consider just buying the head if that is available as well...because I really wish to do a diorama in celebration of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

Quick picture and somewhat blurry. With glasses on and those thin lips, and strong eyebrows like the Queen has, and her eyes repainted and rerooted with grey/black hair, I think I can get a strong strong resemblance to the Queen, especially with the famous coat dress.
Another doll had also arrived- Rockmaster Romain Perrin from the W club- finally!

His shoes are incredibly detailed- with tiny zippers on the inside of the half boots!
I liked his suit, he also comes with necklace, ring, as well as gloved hands, but I can't really imagine
using them, they look kind of odd in my opinion.

I haven't had much doll time since coming back from Norfolk , Va. But hope to have more!

Re-ment clothes for Mini American Girl dolls

I found this little Re-ment outfit on Ebay a few days back, so decided to place and bid and it just arrived today. These little outfits look great on Skipper, Staci, and Poppy and Momoko dolls, on a whim I decided to try this one on Mini American Girl Kit.
As most of you know, I have the big 18 inch American Girl dolls, but also simply LOVE the minis- they are 6 inches high, but are thick in the body . They are probably the size of a Lati Yellow with a smaller head, the body is cloth with vinyl limbs. Very hard to find clothing for.
I have the outfit with the white skirt and green and white striped top, but that is currently claimed by my vintage Growin Up Skipper- one of my favorite childhood dolls. Kit looks adorable in this outfit so I may be buying more of these items for the minis sinc ethey look so cute in them.
Watch for more- I didn't realize it has been so long without an update on Barbietown! Mini Kit and probably Poppy may be traveling with me soon!

Breakfast at Tiffany's Holly Golightly has arrived!

She's arrived! My awesome score from Ebay has arrived! The W club 'Breakfast at Tiffany's at 6 am", the iconic dress, sunglasses, jewelry, and Audrey Hepburn stepping from the cab in the beginning of the iconic movie with her cup of coffee and pastry bag, stopping to look in the window of Tiffany's. I love this whole line of dolls, and hope to add a few more to my collection. This iconic lady was my birthday present to myself. So a few more pics of Holly looking in the boutique window. It might be fun to dress up the window with jewelry later on, when I re-do the window.

Enjoy the pics! More in my Flicker albums!

Happy Birthday to me!

Happy Birthday to me...Lisa, lol. Above is a pic of my mini American Girl dolls, celebrating mini Felicity's birthday, which is a few days before mine! I haven't had time to do anything
special with big Felicity, and the minis were so much fun to stage.

My hubby Chris took me out to dinner last night at Sedona Taphouse and we had the steak dinner with mashed potatoes and broccoli. Sedona Taphouse is a wonderful place, with over 400? beers on tap. Though I do not drink, the food is delicious. So we started celebrating my birthday last night, which was fun. I think tomorrow is Chinese food!
I haven't pics of all my goodies yet, since I am being careful with budget right now. But I did find one of my holy grail dolls from the Poppy Parker Breakfast at Tiffany's series. I wanted them all, but am having to pick and choose because of cost- and so many club dolls will be shipping soon!
Here is Holly Golightly Breakfast at Tiffany's at 6 am that I found on Ebay for a BIN now price. I am hoping there is nothing wrong with her, she is advertised as NRFB...keeping fingers crossed here.
After having to sell two of my Poppy Parkers previous this year, I am steadily attempting to 'replace' my Poppy collection, as they are my favorite Jason Wu dolls. I love their fresh, innocent and alluring faces, to me they are far more lovelier than the bitchy look on some of the other W Club
I am also hoping to bring home Ken's mini cooper home...just haven't found time to pick it up yet. So pics on more of my birthday goodies later...
